Not conducive to all kinds of foreign trade of the factors that continue to exist, such as the situation remains volatile in the Middle East, the main consumer countries do not have to show strong signs of recovery in the international market is tepid. It is worth mentioning, Europe and the United States trade protectionism is clearly on the rise, and frequent anti-dumping investigations against Chinese products, and to impose punitive tariffs, trade barriers continue to upgrade.
